Tris C left this review about The Albion

Dating from the mid-19th century, this was rebuilt in 1923, directly opposite Olympia.
Well described below, the slightly rustic interior and more, can be seen on the pub’s website gallery; of note, is the helical cast iron staircase leading to the upper bar, which is partially galleried. Customers were fairly young, seemingly with more upstairs than down.
The ale front delivered up four unused pumps, then just Pride and Tribute, sadly with the clip reversed, so it was a half of Neck Oil at an utterly unjustifiable £4.00 a half, served by a taciturn barman in one of Beavertown’s ugly stumpy glasses, which I could barely get my hand round.
This is really quite a nice pub (despite the location), but the limited ale choice and insulting prices drops the score by a point, but it would make for a good double with the Cumberland Arms nearby.

A rather cosy pub with a very laid-back feel and a fair beer range. The fairly dark interior is decorated with numerous photos of 60's pop groups. Oh, and check out the urinals! A row of handpumps featured TT Landlord and Knowles Spring, Tribute, Proper Job, London Pride and a rather nice brass Morrell's pump clip, the latter sadly of course just for decoration. If only...

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Albion

Corner pub at the junction of Hammersmith Road and Munden Street. It has a narrow frontage, and although the main bar doesn't stretch back that far there is also an upstairs bar accessed by a narrow metal spiral staircase (or by a set of normal stairs at the back for the faint-hearted). The layout and decor of both bars is pleasingly traditional, and the atmosphere has improved substantially in recent years. There are six handpumps in the main bar with another four upstairs; but, with some doubled-up or not in use, the choice isn't always as large as first impressions suggest. However, the quality is fine, and on my latest visit I found Pride, Tribute, Hobgoblin Gold, Trooper and Cameron's Craft Thirst Blood (£3.70) available.
